Report in the English media claims that young and talented Manchester United star Axel Tuanzebe is on the verge of sealing a loan move to Championship side Aston Villa.
Villa want the 20-year old star at Villa Park for the remaining part of the season as they hope to fight for promotion back to Premier League next season according to Daily Mail.
Jose Mourinho was initially reluctant to let the defender leave due to injury concerns of first team defenders, but he seems to be relaxed now and would likely sanction loan move for the star before the weekend.
While speaking in a press briefing last Friday, the 54-year old tactician reveals Tuanzebe could be sent on a loan move for the second half of the season
‘Tuanzebe’s a very good player that is not having lots of possibilities to play here,’ Mourinho said.
‘No chance we give up on such a talented boy. But it is something we are thinking about, a loan until the end of the season.’
Tuanzebe, a product of Manchester United academy has only feature three times for the Red Devils this term.
A loan move to Championship side for the second half of the season could actually be the best option for the England Under-21 star as he could get more game time and experience
